Thunderbird Entertainment Group Inc.

Following the successful June premiere of GPM’s latest home reno and design series Styled for HGTV, Corus Entertainment announced the premiere of GPM’s new series Deadman’s Curse for History Channel. Bell Media’s Discovery Channel also announced the new two-part documentary After the Storm about the 2021 storm and flooding in B.C. Both new series will air fall 2022. In addition, Reginald the Vampire, a GPM-produced scripted drama series for Thunderbird Scripted premieres later this fall on SyFy Channel.

GPM’s series renewals announced in June include for Bell Media’s Discovery: Highway Thru Hell (season 11), Heavy Rescue: 401 (season 7), and Mud Mountain Haulers (season 2). For Corus Entertainment’s HGTV: Gut Job (season 2). And for APTN and Blue Ant Media’s Cottage Life Channel the second season of Dr. Savannah: Wild Rose Vet, (produced by Wapanantahk Media in partnership with GPM).

“There is a growing demand for unscripted programming and thanks to the hard work of all our amazing, talented teams and partners GPM has never been busier,” said David Way, President of GPM. “Adding new original series to our production slate along with renewals of our premium programs are core to our strategy of creative expansion. We are excited to continue work with our clients and partners on all these powerful series and look forward to an exciting year ahead with our fresh slate of new ideas that present significant future growth opportunities in the unscripted market.”

Formerly referred to as Thunderbird’s Factual Division, Great Pacific Media will now be known as Thunderbird’s Unscripted Division to accurately represent the increasing diversification of productions created, developed and produced by GPM.
